Record Number of Passengers Predicted On NS Trains After Holidays

NS predicts around 36.7 million train passengers next month. Last year there were just over 35 million train travellers. 

September is always the busiest month for travel each year as children are starting back at school and students are heading back to university.

To combat the influx of train travellers, up to 200 extra seats will be deployed on the busiest train journeys (The Hague and Leiden, Rotterdam and Amsterdam, and The Hague and Eindhoven). The NS have also requested that ProRail extends nine of the stations platforms as well.

Well, it may be busy in the Netherlands but at least it’s not the Shinjuku station in Tokyo which battles crowds of 3.6 million people daily!

Freya was born in Edinburgh but raised in New Zealand (cue every person she meets saying “oh I have always wanted to go there but it’s so far away!”). A restless and curious nature has led her to move countries 5 times in the last 3 years in attempt to find a place she can call home. She contacted DutchReview on a whim and arrived in the Netherlands in summer 2019 to start her internship.
